You know...
...I wondered if that model's name had owt to do with the film of the same name !

More thanks, Brian... for the article to go with the plans I uploaded !
I doubt I will ever make one of those - since my general health is no longer really suited to 'big models'...(!)
...but there is always the option of making something half size !

I just discovered a small pile of old magazines - with reduced plans within.
I'd forgotten I have them.
I can scan the small plans at high resolution - and post them here...
...or even in in the correct thread !

Keven.

Steve,

Lincoln suggested scaling up the Fighter Glider.....There's 72" version of it on Outerzone and a complete build log (mine.....Old_Pilot) on the aircraft....I've only tested her on short glides because the weather here has been uncooperative for any attempt at sustained flight.

Good luck

Brian,

Dont apology, as we use to say "better a bad scan than no scan at all"

Thank you for searching in all your old book

Greetings! I seem to remember a plan for a Ringmaster that had a "head and top hat" on it like an actual Ringmaster would. I believe there were some spin-off modifications along these same lines too. Would anyone know where I could get a plan for one of these?

Is this what your looking for.

This is the only ones I have seen Uncle Sam could easily be modified in to the Ringmaster type character.

Help please!! I just found an old Buzzard Bombshell 72" FF kit made by Classic Model Aircraft in Culver City, CA. I can't seem to find anything on the internet specifically related to this manufacturer. It appears to be from the 60's and seems to be a complete kit, although the tires have gone completely flat. I'm trying to find a value for it, as I intend to sell the kit. Anyone have any ideas? There is a business card in the box from Frank's Hobby Shop, Champaign, Illinois, with a phone number of 2-6022, which dates the kit to before 7-digit phone numbers and zip codes. Thanks.

My first C/L build was the AJ Walker Firebrat. It was an all balsa profile trainer with fox 15 for power. I don't recall any plans per say, but was wondering if anyone had a scaleable drawing?
TIA

Here you go. Not exactly sure about the scaling, but working with the 1.75in wheel dimension given, I get that to around 35in wingspan.

Considering the all-sheet balsa construction and the very short nose, I doubt that the proper CoG could be established without a lead propeller

FLYABOUT, considering the radios, and batteries if the period, it might balance.
